Min Chiang Kueh – 面煎粿

***Important note, water has to be lukewarm for the batter.

This fluffy peanut pancake invokes lots of childhood memories for us. Who doesn’t love a moist and fluffy pancake, stuffed with a generous portion of crushed peanut? Min Chiang Kueh when done right, should have a nice honeycomb structure. This is what makes the pancake fluffy.

Well well well our favourite part is still the thin crust that surrounds the actual pancake. Which kid (or adult) doesn’t like that huh?

Give our simple recipe a try and surprise your family! Best part is, you can even substitute crushed peanut with coconut shreds and orange sugar or even red bean paste!
